RaveLibrary JournalWith his rambling style and multiplicity of sources, Roberts \'jumps around the ages,\' seamlessly blending memoir, history, and reportage to describe the region’s human story ... One last fond look at a favorite place? A swan song of a prolific author? Roberts adds inviting details throughout this must-read book, adding poignancy to an already fascinating read.
PositiveThe Wall Street Journal...a masterly synthesis of scientific research and personal observation ... This is, nonetheless, a tragic story, which Mr. Flores tells with a judicious mix of indignation and empathy for even the most blinkered of the coyote’s enemies ... For all but the most devoted reader, the book will bog down a bit in the middle, as Mr. Flores unleashes a parade of agencies and bureaucrats bent on controlling the coyote scourge. Yet out of that blur emerge colorful characters.
